Testimonial


Testimonial by a Special Education Teacher

My 10- years-old student worked really well today. He sat calmly and worked for two hours without a break! For the first time. I have not been able to cover this amount of work in a lesson before, without him asking for a break or losing concentration. Although he appeared to not be listening, he was drawing, and able to repeat the sentence for dictation. This is clear evidence of "holding auditory information in working memory and retaining it". Previously, when asked, he would not have retained such auditory information. I can only attribute this progress to the therapy at Tomatis.

Testimonial by 12-year-old girl’s mother

Our daughter has evolved in a spectacular manner! She has become a joyful young girl, who is more dynamic and independent. Many thanks to the Tomatis Listening Center in Rolles

Testimonial by 8 year-old boy’s mother

The Tomatis method has really been a breakthrough in the relationship with my son. Whilst as little as a couple of months ago I was really eager for him to go to bed in the evenings, we now have a much better bond and he has started reading on his own at bedtime, for the first time. We have a much more pleasant time together and I can see how quickly he has evolved in his behavior and confidence since starting with the sessions at the Tomatis centre.

Testimonial of a 17 year-old boy’s mother

We searched for a way to help our 17 year-old son manage his stress and express himself without feeling guilty. The Tomatis Method seemed most pertinent because it facilitated healing from a blockage loaded with emotions, therefore hard to explain rationally, and from hidden inferiority that was complicated to explain to a therapist….. Tomatis works in a limited time framework, touches sensitivity and based on this sets the counter to zero. This method is peaceful and reassuring because of its gentle nature. The results are clear; our son believes in himself, expresses himself and finally makes life decisions without feeling guilty. He takes risks and acts in full consciousness; he is happy and grateful. Our son has recommended one of his friends follow the same program with completely positive results. His friend is totally conscious of how following the Tomatis method helped him.

Testimonial of a forty-year-old man in contact with clients

After 10 Tomatis sessions, I feel more centered. Both oral and written expression is easier for me now. My voice is placed more deeply and my public speaking is improved, so I stress less. Thus, I can now interact with others for longer times with less fatigue.

Testimonial of a 5 year old boy

My bilingual son had trouble following instructions at school. A listening assessment at the Tomatis center in Rolle changed our lives. The Tomatis process was surprisingly enjoyable and the children’s play area was excellent. Suddenly my son started to pick up books and read for the first time spontaneously. He also started singing and his confidence soared. Currently he is reading and writing exceptionally well for his age and achieving good test results. Now my son can understand constructive criticism without being deeply wounded. Tomatis has changed my little one’s life and our family’s (farher and mother attend for free).

Anonymous testimony from a person who has fallen into burn-out

After a burn-out, I decided to follow Tomatis listening sessions. I am delighted, because thanks to the Tomatis Listening and Health Centre where I followed my treatment, accompanied by competent professionals, I became aware of the importance of living in the present moment. This method has helped me to better manage my emotions. I am more serene and more attentive to my body. My concentration has improved and I have regained the desire and pleasure of drawing. 35 year old women

Adopted girl, 6 years old

Her mother said, she is more self aware and happier. She now verbalizes her needs instead of behaving aggressively. Thanks to improved listening, she is more balanced and confident. Thanks to the Centre d’Ecoute et de Santé « Fleur »
